 2283 Goodyear front tires bought today in Vegas and should be delivered tomorrow.

  ProCharger Intercooler should be here next week. Hope its exactly the same so all the pipes fit.

  Heard a horn honk and an unmarked white mini van outside, driver says company was OnTrack?

  Intercooler arrived by FedX. All plumbing will hook right up cheers

  They made the top and bottom angle steeper but everything else the same.

  Feeling stupid and panicked for a while though. Took it out of box, measuring every thing Then noticed no outlet for water, Dodge they put them on the bottom, crap I don't like that the water will never get to top of intercooler and a bitch to plumb angry
 
  Then I turned it over. I had it upside down rolleyes  grin

  Just Home Depot assemble yourself cabinets and Formica plastic laminate counter tops [ about $80 per 8' section and around $100 per cabinet]

 We need to cut a hole on top and weld temp sensor plate from old intercooler and weld tabs on that connect bar
that insures that blower tubes stay connected.
 New Miller 200 muti welder being shipped will post pics.
 
  Installed new blower pulleys and belt, gas tank and fuel lines and fabricated new inner spill plates and most of the angle brackets Sunday and Monday. Troy took pics, should post.

  Finished mounting new plates today just need to uninstall, sand sharp edges and paint.

 Ordered longer fire bottle cables Friday from www.controlcables.com [ rule book add ] should be here soon.

  Need to weld tabs on intercooler for blower tube restraints and plate with !/2'' pipe thread on top of cooler for temp sensor.
 
  Getting close to fireup grin

  Got to pull right rear hub on trailer and try to figure out why we blew 3 tires there last last year.
 1 after Bville, trailer empty going about 50 mph hub never feels warmer than others?
  Think I'll go down to the 4 lane and have Troy look from another car and see if its a balance problem 1st.
  Anyhow we have 4 new tires and 4 spares now shocked

Some long over due photos!!

Cutting the stabilizers



Cut now a lot of fine shaping before mounting!



Two views of both mounted.  Like JL said above time to take them off and sand the sharp edges down and paint.

We are making a new push button fire bottle deployment system, here is what the old one looks like.



The new one will extend out further making it easier to deploy.











We are still waiting for the new lines and will get rid of all the sharp edges once we get the lines fitted.
